Today is the second death anniversary of Bollywood's evergreen beauty Sridevi. The actress with her undying charm and charismatic beauty continued to rule the industry. It's been 2 years since Sridevi took her last breath but you will be surprised to know that even though Sridevi's Instagram page in not active from the last two years, fans have left comments on her last post.
On a related note, last year, Boney Kapoor had opened up about Sridevi's death and had told a media portal, "She was dedication personified. I have worked with many actors and with due respect to all the actors that I have worked with, who were really hardworking, she was on a different level altogether."
He had further added, "She was a legend in her lifetime and she remains a legend after she has left us. She may have left for the world, but for me, for us, she is still around. She is wishing us well and taking care of us and is still around."
That tragic night
Komal Nahta had revealed what happened on that tragic night after talking to Boney Kapoor. Komal said that while Boney Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor had come back to the country after attending Mohit Marwah's wedding, Sridevi had chosen to extend her stay. Boney had gone back to Dubai to surprise Sridevi.
Boney asked Sridevi to freshen up so they can go for a romantic dinner and started watching TV in their hotel room. However, when even after 15 minutes when Sridevi did not come out, Boney shouted for her. When he could not hear any sound, he called her again and fearing something had happened, went inside the bathroom only to see Sridevi immersed in water in the bathtub with not a single drop of water has come out of the tub.
Deccan Chronicle recently reported that Satyarth Nayak, the author of her biography Sridevi: The Eternal Goddess, came to know that Sridevi used to have bouts of fainting spells. "Both Pankaj Parasher (who directed Sridevi in Chaalbaaz) and Nagarjuna told me that she had low blood pressure issues. Both said while working on their films, she fainted in the bathroom. Then I met Srideviji's niece Maheshwari, she also said she had found Sriji collapsed in the bathroom, her face bleeding. Boney Sir also told me that Sriji would suddenly collapse while walking. As I said, she was battling low blood pressure," he said.
While several conspiracy theories had started floating around after her death and a foul-play being involved behind her untimely death, this revelation puts an end to many questions we all had.
Sridevi's last Bollywood film was Mom, which was released on July 7, 2017. However, she had a special appearance in Shah Rukh Khan's Zero, which was released in December 2018.
